Praise for Green Plans: Blueprint for a Sustainable Earth (Our Sustainable Future)

“In drawing on his environmental policymaking in California and his work with the Dutch and New Zealand governments, Huey Johnson has, in effect, given us an environmental ‘how to’ book for officials at all levels of government.”—Lester Brown, president of the Earth Policy Institute

“A balanced, well-written argument for a mutually beneficial plan for enabling sustainable [industrial] development while protecting environmental quality.”—Choice

“Persuasive and urgent.”—Review of European Community and International Environmental Law

“This book is quite informative. It would be useful for anyone seeking (detailed) knowledge about designing a ‘greenprint for sustainability.’ The more technical emphasis, in combination with a case-study approach, makes it quite suitable for public officials, such as environmental planners/managers, and for beginning students of environmental policy. . . . This is a welcome addition to the literature relating to the operationalisation and implementation of the concept of sustainability.”—Environmental Politics
